Albemarle County has unanimously voted to take down its Confederate statue in Court Square. We revisit the history and meanings of the statue. Plus, Billy Jean Louis updates us on how local schools are coping with the ongoing threat of COVID-19. Speaking of pandemics, in the last segment, we look back in time to the 1918 Flu here in Charlottesville and think about what has and has not changed about public health in the last 102 years.
